He ended his performance with a bang and the crowd went wild!
“Pilipinas Got Talent” Joven Olvido didn’t only receive a standing ovation from the live audience yesterday, April 14, but also earned mad love and respect from the judges, including a touching comment by Vice Ganda he would never forget.
The tricycle driver from Laguna did a parody of all the other remaing contestants’ signature stunt and the Unkabogable Star praised him for coming up with that idea.
Vice said Joven is very much like him, the kind of comedian who mainly uses his wit to make people laugh. And because of that, he volunteered to serve as a mentor to the new internet star.
“Ngayong nakita kita, I want to mentor you, kasi ang bilis ng utak mo eh! Hindi ikaw ‘yung comedy na papangit. Nakikita ko kasi ‘yung sarili ko sa’yo, ‘yung tatas ng bunganga mo ang nakakatawa. Kailangan ng mundo ng maraming nakakatawa,” said the “It’s Showtime” host.
He also defended Joven against critics saying that Joven doesn’t deserve a spot on the semifinals, as they think his talent isn’t up to par. But Vice begged to differ, “Ang papatawa ay isang art at isang talento.”
The “The Revenger Squad” actor even promised Joven a brand new tricycle as a reward for making everyone watching happy. He said, “Joven, ‘di ba may tricycle ka? Kanino ‘yun, sa pinsan mo? Ay nako, pinasaya mo ko, ibibili kita ng sarili mong tricycle. Thank you for making us happy tonight.”
The performance’s effect on action star Robin Padilla was the same. “Masaya kang tao at napasaya mo kaming lahat. Nakalimutan namin lahat ng pinagdadaanan namin eh! Tol, you are a total performer,” he said. As well as to award-winning actress Angel Locsin, who pleaded votes for Joven.
“Ang advantage mo is walang sinumang matinong tao na makakaisip kung ano ang susunod mong gagawin. Lahat kami dito kakabagin sa kakatawa sa’yo,” said Angel.
“Illutionist” Karl Matrix, dance groups Aloha Philippines from Baguio city and Dauntless Republic were among the night’s set of performers.
